Dashboard Camera Function Guide

With new technology readily available, JVCKENWOOD has developed an easy
to use dashboard camera for everyday use. The device allows its user to record files in 1 / 3 / 5 minute
lengths. These files are easy to download to your desktop or laptop.
In most instances, the video files are easily played on your mobile device.
While most cameras traditionally use the entire capacity of the SD card until it is
removed, the device automatically deletes the oldest file to create space for the new video.
Dashboard camera offers three modes:
1. Video Mode: Video mode will set to default when the device is active.
2. Photo Mode: The device setting takes still photographs.
3. Playback Mode: Users can view all previously recorded videos and photos taken.
Automatic Start/ Stop Technology:
Maintain full focus on the road! The vehicles ignition will let the device turn on while
connected to your vehicles 12 V outlet or cigarette lighter socket. When the vehicle is
turned off, the device will automatically shut down, preserving the device power for those
moments you are not connected to permanent power.
The device lets users adjust camera settings to get the perfect shot. For a great photo
every time, here are a few tips from the designers:
Reduce the amount of sky in the picture. By adjusting the device towards the road,
the automatic exposure compensation will be focused on the road and not the light from
the sky.
Position the device in the center of the dash. If you place the device behind the rearview
mirror, you will avoid all distractions from the road.
Remove any objects that will obstruct your shot such as the protective lens cover.
Clear vision will allow you to record everything in one shot.
